23 year old Ravi is a Leeds University environment and business graduate. He set up a company called Filamentive and joined The Environment Now project. Filamentive recycles and processes plastic waste to make 3D printer filament. He found out about The Environment Now through the enterprise society at his university and decided to apply. The funding Ravi received has allowed him to experiment with the manufacturing of recycled 3D printer filament and improve his marketing of the company. He has even been recognised by Leeds University as ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’.
“Not only has The Environment Now allowed Filamentive to grow, it also projects the trust in backing young entrepreneurs who are pioneering innovative solutions to the environmental problems we face as a planet”
